Casio is honoring Bruce Lee with a special edition G-SHOCK watch, the MRG-G2000BL-9A. Appearing under the brand’s luxury line Mr-G, the timepiece arrives in celebration of what would be Lee’s 80th birthday this year.
The watch’s black and yellow color scheme is a nod to the tracksuit Lee wore in 1978 film, Game of Death, which was released after his passing. The yellow and red combination then points to the emblem of the martial arts philosophy Lee founded, Jeet Kune Do.
The MRG-G2000BL-9A is encased in titanium with a scratch-resistant sapphire glass crystal bezel, which reads, “Using no way as a way, having no limitation as limitation,” and incorporates diamond-like carbon to aid in abrasion resistance. Furthermore, Lee’s nickname is highlighted on the dial. Boasting a solar power charging system, the watch comes with a Dura Soft Fluoro-Rubber band to complete the design.
The Bruce Lee-themed MRG-G2000BL-9A, which is priced at $4,000, is limited to just 300 units, releasing in April at G-SHOCK and select retailers.
